Who is Althouse? * View only LAW posts * Contribute * Shop AMAZON*
Great, I learnt a new phrase.He's known for his terrible sweaters, terrible NPR-schmindie taste in white people music.I went In Search Of...schmindie:Unlike most genres, schmindie kids find caring “uncool” and “funny.” It is particularly uncool to care about war, politics, religion or anything else beyond clothes and haircuts / cigarettes and alcohol. Apathy and ignorance are their ideals. Therefore, we must create meaningless content that fills up hours of airtime while never actually saying anything.So, wait -- emos? Or do emos care, but the problem is no one cares about them?Cheers,Victoria
What possessd him to wear that sweater on TV? And with the collar of a cheap white t-shirt peeking out? Yuck.
I was a bit thrown by "schmindie" as well, but of late I haven't been keeping up with the often-amusing (for New Yorkers anyway) Gawker. Who knows what hip neologisms I'm missing out on as we speak.And yet, "schmindie" seems like the right kind of music for a guy who reminds me so much of Chris Elliott.
I don't much like Gawker, but an article linked to from the article Althouse linked to redeems its entire existence. Gawker: officially not totally useless since September 9th 2008!
Wolfson's schtick is goofy, but unfortunately for the Dems; he's also credible.Not since Carville went to the dark side of K Street has a Dem operative exposed their war room mentality with so much glee.
Good post, but I loved the link at the bottom: "Carly Fiorina Keeps Falling Up." It amazes me that people outside the computer industry take her seriously after she hosed up HP so badly.
